It’s been a long time in development. A Girl of Glass was first unveiled right back in 2016 as part of the Square Enix Collective program. Now, four years later, it’s finally close to release. This is a point-and-click adventure game with turn-based combat, and a really gorgeous art style.
Branching dialogues to personalize your experience
Balanced combat with an emphasis on strategy over stats
Visual novel narration style
Traditional 2D painted and animated environments projected onto 3D surfaces to add depth to the scenes
A full orchestral soundtrack for total immersion in the story
Set in a fictional mid-20th-century European country
The developer has even released a playable demo so you can give the game a spin ahead of its launch on Steam in summer (or winter, for us in the southern hemisphere). Currently, there’s no console release planned, but the developer has stated that if it’s a success on PC, a port to other platforms is on the cards.
